The Maine Human Rights Commission on Monday denied Gov. Paul LePage's request to reopen a case in which it determined that Moody's Diner in Waldoboro had discriminated against an employee. According to the Bangor Daily News
, LePage had concerns that the commission had only used snippets of a recording as evidence for the discrimination, but the commission was not convinced and said the full recording should have been submitted as evidence in the first place. The commission's executive director, Amy Sneirson, said in a memo to commissioners that "the commission is a quasi-independent agency and is supposed to be immune from the sort of politicking that has happened in this case," referring to LePage's actions.
Should LePage involve himself with cases being heard by the Maine Human Rights Commission?
